Posted on May 9, 2019 by Brad McCabe


Brother International Corporation is proud to support the next generation of fashion designers through its ongoing sponsorship of the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), which continues with the annual "The Future of Fashion" Runway Show, to take place tonight at 7:00 p.m. at the John E. Reeves Great Hall on the FIT Campus. Many of the looks featured in tonight's fashion show have been crafted on one of Brother's state-of-the-art machines.

"We are looking forward to viewing the exceptional work from FIT's graduating class and learning more about how Brother can help fulfill their visions," said Jim Price, Sr. Director of Marketing for Brother's Home Appliance Division. "It is our priority to consider the present and future needs of the fashion industry – and everyone working in it – as we continue to release cutting-edge products to bring their creative ambitions to fruition."

Earlier this year, Brother donated over $100,000 worth of sewing, embroidery and electronic cutting machines to FIT's School of Art and Design for student and faculty use. Additionally, members of the Brother team led a series of tutorials and demonstrations with educators and technicians.

"We are very pleased to be in a partnership with Brother," said Troy Richards, Dean of FIT's School of Art and Design. "The company's generous donation shows a commitment to investing in our students who will change the industry with their limitless creativity. We look forward to what this partnership will bring."

Brother's other fashion-related collaborations include sponsoring Bravo's reality competition program, Project Runway, which it has been doing every season since its inception in 2004. They have also collaborated with iconic American designer, Nicole Miller, having sponsored her "Fall '18 New York Fashion Week" show.
